Water and Sewer Services

Water and Sewer operations are financed and operated in a manner similar to private business enterprise where the intent of the governing body is for the costs (including depreciation) of providing water and sewer services to the general public on a continuing basis to be financed or recovered through user charges.

Utility Billing
Due to continued escalation of the federal and state emergency related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic and the recent extension of the Shelter In Place order by the Health Officer of Sonoma County (Order No. C19-03), City offices remain closed to the public.
The following options are to make it as convenient as possible to manage your utility account during this time.

We remain available by phone 707-665-3631 or by email at water@cotaticity.org to answer any questions.
